Bishop's  Message

“The earth has yielded its fruits, the Lord our God has blessed us ...” (Ps 67:6) says the Psalmist in praise of God who gives good harvest. Faced with an erratic monsoon season in which, after a long wait, some areas have experienced torrential rains and ensuing flood-like situation while in many places rains have been deficient, will we be able to join the Psalmist and thank God for a plentiful harvest in due time?

Indian economy, despite all the tall claims made by our business and corporate sectors, is still dependent largely on normal annual monsoon, failure or the excess of which spells doom, foreshadowing the grim realities of drought, scarcity and famine.

History of the Diocese

The Present Ecclesiastical territory of Balasore, Comprising the 4 civil Districts : Bhadrak, Balasore, Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar of Orissa State, was under the Archdiocese of Calcutta until 1968.Though the origin of Christianity in this part of North East Orissa can be traced back to 1514 with a Portuguese settlement in Pippilli, Balasore got a resident Priest in the person of Fr. Sapport S.J. only in 1865. He had built a beautiful church (Lal Girja) in Balasore and had started a Foundling Home, which later was looked after by the Daughters of the Cross (DC). Fr Sapport S.J. was said to be the Pioneer Missionary of Balasore. In 1915, the Daughters of St. Joseph of Chembery had arrived and opened a Convent and a School in Balasore which was functioning until 1938.  Read More....
